Subject Re: [Jelly] nested compileScript() with import ?
Date Sun, 05 Dec 2004 22:06:13 GMT
Yes,  I have copied the import tag and added the cache to the new tag.
It works fine, but I would like to reuse compiled scripts
- if several container scripts include the same sub script
- if a container script include the same sub script several times

To do that, I currently use the JellyContext to cache compiled scripts 
with a call to setVariable(),
using a variable name based on the script uri... it works, but it's not 
really clean.

Maybe a better way would be to override the compileScript() methods of 
the JellyContext
and add a cache of compiled scripts inside the context (indexed by 
uri/url) ?

Also I am not sure how to handle the 'export' and 'inherit' parameters 
when I use compileScript+run instead of a single call to runScript().

You say a Tag isn't compilable, but what's the "CompilableTag" ??
I tried to use it the but the attributes (uri,...) of my tag are empty 
when "compile" is called.

Thanks for your help!
